I picked this hotel because of its price - a little less than 70euro per night, which is as good as it can get for a decent hotel in Prague.
Location - as other fellow travellers have mentioned, the hotel is walking distance (prob around 10min) from the nearest lightrail station which takes you directly into central Prague. We, however, had a car with us, and it took us no more than 10-15 min driving time (no highway, just the main street all the way down) to reach the city center. Traffic was almost non-existent, I am actually jealous of drivers in Prague! Street parking in Prague is not so difficult to find during weekdays (8am-6pm), however the time limit is only 2hrs, which is quite insufficient for tourists and the machines take coins only. Parking lots are not easy to find, so we stopped by a tourist office to find out where those are. The one offering best deal is located under the National Opera(?) and costs about 1.5euro per hour (same price as street parking). Street parking is free and in abundance after 6pm and on weekends.
Hotel parking is tight, but free.
There is a supermarket (Kaufland) right across the lightrail station, where one can get water and munch food (as well as anything else).
Hotel Grounds - Exterior is quite beautiful, manicured grounds, well cut gras, very well kept. Lobby is also pretty nice, but the hotel hallways were pretty old and poorly lit.
Rooms - Our room actually was quite nice (for the money) - pls see pics, has probably been partially renovated a few years ago. Flat screen TV was nice, red colored wall - too. Bathroom and Shower are separate, and quite old - I can bet on 20 yrs, maybe more. Those, however, were cleaned thoroughly, so really not a problem for me (at this price). What was quite disturbing though, was the shower ventilation system, once the light is turned on, the noisiest buzzing you could ever hear fills the room and probably the whole building. Almost like a plane taking off! Seriously.
Our room was overlooking the road, where the hotel is situated - once you open the windows it can get noisy (but the road is not very busy), but if the windows are kept closed - its all fine.
I wish the room had a mini-bar.
Check in - our flight arrived very early and we were at the hotel at 10am. The guy at front desk did not even try to accomodate us - he flatly said we cannot check in until 2pm. This was a bit disappointing, since we had a small baby with us, but as I said, when a hotel charges that much, a slip like that is accepted. My other dealings with front desk were uneventful - the guys working there were very polite and pleasing, and we were even allowed to check out after 1pm (normal time is 12pm)
Amenities - The hotel has a sauna (for a fee), restaurant (which we didnt use) and a gym (free), as well as in-room wireless internet .
All in all, I would stay again in this hotel, I am very happy at the value it offers, its great location and despite the minus-es mentioned, it was a positive experience for our family. I recommend.
